Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

I made these mashed potatoes for our Christmas dinner this past year with my husband's side of the family. They were a huge hit and I got quite a few compliments! Creamy, flavorful and delicious, these are definitely not boring mashed potatoes!!!

5 pounds red potatoes, cut into chunks (leave skins on!)
1 tablespoon minced garlic (I used paste)
3 chicken bouillon cubes
1 (8 oz.) container sour cream
1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup of butter
salt & pepper to taste

In a large pot of slightly salted boiling water, cook the potatoes, garlic and bouillon until potatoes are tender but firm (about 15 minutes). Drain, reserving water. In a separate large bowl, mash potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese, adding reserved water as needed to attain desired consistency.
Transfer the potato mixture in to your slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Just before serving, stir in butter and season with salt and pepper to taste.
